Bringing us up to date, Yesterday we spent a warm sunny training day on a hillside in Tecate. Not short of hillsides or rough terrain, we brought to the bomberos through equipment donations collected through the past couple years along with being able to purchase some additional hardware from cash donations, Rope kits for each of the 6 stations that cover the hundreds of square miles in and around Tecate.
The area does have several Voluntarios groups specifically engaged for rescue but what is needed is the ability to quickly initiate a rescue while waiting for back up. We were able to put together rope, hardware, harnesses for each station. Training for low to medium initial rescue operations for engine companies. Lead by Scott Booth LT/ PM/ Rescue Tech and with Bomberos De SanDiego we had a great time running rescue evolutions and engaging our brothers and sisters. Following the training the kits are are to be deployed.
